HARTFORD, Conn. – The Judiciary Committee approved two bills this week in an effort to reform the juvenile justice system.
On Wednesday, the committee voted 41-4 in favor of a wide-ranging juvenile justice reform bill that has rehabilitation of young people, instead of jailing them, as its primary goal.
The bill, H.B. 5642, would implement the recommendations of the Juvenile Justice Policy Oversight Committee.
